Software Estimation

Software Estimation - Course Listings
Course Details:

Our Software Estimation training class provides a facilitated training experience for individuals who are involved with the production and management of software project estimates. Our expert consultants will help you to understand estimation and sizing as it applies to your organization with a combination of lecture, exercises, and discussion. 

In the course, you will learn how to:

  • Identify which process changes are required to fulfill your estimation objectives
  • Better predict time-to-delivery

This class is ideal for a Vice President or Director of Software Development who needs or wants their line of business to better estimate Agile projects so that they are more effective in predicting time-to-market and cost. This is an interactive training class, providing an understanding of estimation and sizing as it applies to your organization, including how to identify which process changes are required to fulfill your estimation objectives. Unlike a standardized training class, our class leverages years of experience in measurement and metrics in an interactive format to help you build an action plan for your organization.

If you wish to have an on-site training class at your location, please contact Tony Manno at 610-829-9122. More information on the class is available here.
